BGLUG Meeting Tues. May 1

Our next meeting is Tuesday, May 1st, 7 pm, at the United Way. Click for Google Map. Bring your favourite (non-alcoholic) beverage.

Update: Our topic is "Windows is dead...long live Windows."

For those who haven't heard, the Windows Division at Microsoft is gone. Microsoft reorganized and Executive Vice President Windows has been eliminated. The surviving windows division personnel now report to the VP of Office365. 

Of course windows will not disappear. There are about 600 million Windows 10 users plus many more users of older windows versions. Plus consider Windows in other forms such as WINE and ReactOS.

So this meeting will be about Microsoft Windows. Bring a windows project or interesting windows hardware. Still have that windows 3.1 laptop? Bring it to the meeting and we can play minesweeper. Andrew will try to put together a demo machine running ReactOS.

And of course we welcome tech chat on any topic from astronomy to zoology.
